Sweden - At the Cusp of Legal Internationalization
Stockholm University, Faculty of Law, Department of Law.ORCID iD: 0000-0003-0777-7528
2016 (English)In: Ius Comparatum - Global Studies in Comparative Law, The Internationalization of Legal Education / [ed] Christophe Jamin and William van Caenegem, New York: Springer, 2016, 1, 269-278 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

Sweden is both moving forward and remaining stagnant with respect to the internationalization of the Swedish legal education. Politicians have clearly stated a desire for Sweden to be a world leader in education, entailing an internalizing of internationalization, while at the same time, the legal education has demonstrated a strong amount of inertia in these issues. English has been a strong second language for the Swedish population for decades, but actually stepping outside the Swedish legal system has not been as easily embraced. However, a movement towards a more international perspective can be detected, propelled in part by EU membership in 1995, Erasmus exchange programs, and a desire by some of the younger universities to attract strong students. The landscape with respect to the internationalization of the Swedish legal education will most likely be radically different in ten years, with a greater emphasis placed on Sweden’s part in the world.
